Photos Tanzania 2010 Introduction to Tanzania

Our two Exodus organised weeks were spent with 7 other travellers ('the team') in the north of Tanzania near the Kenya border. On the Kilimanjaro trek we camped but for the rest of the time accommodation was based in Moivaro tourist lodges consisting of individual rondavel houses or permanent tents around a central bar / restaurant / meeting area complex. Our travel was mainly by 4 x 4 apart from the return hour-long flight from Serengeti to Arusha in a small single engine plane.

On the journey between Ngorongoro and Serengeti we stopped at the Olduvai Gorge museum in the area where Louis and Mary Leakey made their ground-breaking discoveries of the earliest evidence of human beings, work later continued by their son, Richard.

The only main drawback to an organised trip in a country like Tanzania is the fact that there is little chance to explore the town / countryside by yourself and to gain a flavour of the 'real' Tanzania. The remaining photos in this selection are all taken from the windows of our vehicles, usually when we had to slow down - an attempt to capture a fleeting flavour of the world inhabited by Tanzanians.
